americans being held prisoner, merrill newman and ken bae. can you talk about that? >> it's a very painstaking process, and i think rule number one is not to talk about it too much in public except to state the obvious. that they ought to be released immediately. but i am sure, i have no doubt, that the u.s. government is doing what it can to get these people released, but the more they talk about it publicly, probably the more difficult it is. i recall very well the iranian situation where we had these three hikers who were caught for no apparent reason, and what these issues often descend to is the internal politics of the country in which they're being held captive. and so the more we say publicly, the more that can be used by which ever side. so i think it's important to work quietly behind the scenes and i suspect we're doing that. and i do hope the chinese are stepping up in this regard. >> ambassador christopher hill, thank you so much. >> thank you. >>> when we come back, two weeks ago, he was receiving the highest hohigh est honor in france. today bob dylan is being sued i

the case of merrill newman, the american, 85-year-old korean war veteran. do you think from your indications, did he raise that subject? because china is our best tool to get pyongyang to release this man. >> well, i mean, i do think that korea matters a lot. we -- i haven't heard much about the gentleman and how much joe biden advocated on his behalf. regarding kim jong-un's uncle, the consequence for this with china is he was the principle bridge of communication, coordination, and promotion of investment and potentially a china-like model for economic development in north korea. and so to see him demoted and some of his colleagues possibly executed is a matter of great concern here in beijing, which has already begun to take steps in recent months to send signals to north korea it didn't like the direction it was going. china imported very serious export controls on various technology exports to north korea because of its nuclear program. and we've learned that, you know, one of the things that joe biden and xi jinping discussed is the similarity, the mix of pressure and kind
